I visited the new location at 32980 Woodward Ave., Royal Oak, MI. I wasn't that impressed with the food here. The dry brisket was just OK and I didn't like the way they weigh the meat before putting it on the plate. If there is...More

I can't wait to go back, but I don't know if I want to get ribs again or see if the rest of the menu is as good. The place is easy to miss, tucked behind Rite-Aid. But don't miss it!!

Didn't like the sauce, and the dry meat needed sauce to help it. KFC cole slaw is better, didn't like any of the food. People were nice and friendly, but won't go back.

If you like good old southern bbq, you can't beat Billy's. Love the sides and always order brisket & ribs.

A bit on the pricey side for a meal, but the food is very good. I've tried the chicken, pork and brisket. Next up is the ribs. Wasn't impressed with the baked potato with meat topping but the salads and sandwiches were very good.
